Students in the Spotlight

Every week a student shares a fun and/or inspiring hobby that keeps them motivated in times of online classes.

Covid 19 and the subsequent lockdowns were affecting all of us, and not in the least our social lives. Although student societies were closed, festivals cancelled and weekends away with friends postponed, there were many ways to adapt to the current situation and practice our hobbies! We asked students to share their (1.5m proof) hobbies with the rest of the WUR community. From baking to biking, and from bird spotting to BBQ’s: students shared their favourite ways to spend their free time!

Do you have a unique, fun or exciting hobby you would like to share with us and the rest of the WUR community? Send an e-mail to with a short story and some photos and maybe you will be featured on this page!
